About ardnut.co.uk

Welcome to ardnut.co.uk. This website exists to showcase the custom paint jobs, diy & modding projects, artwork and more that I've done over the years.

Back in 2006 I had just finished my Metal Slug Themed Arcade Controller and originally created this website simply to show it off. I then added a couple of other projects that I had completed prior to that, like my Warhammer 40000 themed PC, and the website has been growing with new content ever since.

About Me

My name is Ash Bostock and I'm a web developer and artist living in the South East of England. I became interested in and started working with web technologies back in 1998 and have been continuing to do so ever since. I'm currently working for Sparticle Limited, a great company for web design based in Kent. I get to work on various things from Web Design, Web Development, Server Support to Graphic Design. There's also a Multimedia Movie Production for Websites and DVDs division called Spartmedia, which I get involved with from time to time.

On the art side I have been drawing and painting practically all my life, relatively recently adding airbrushing to mix as well.

Below is a list of the gear I currently use to create the items on this site:


  • Iwata Revolution HP-TR1
  • Iwata Sprint Jet Compressor
  • Graphtec Craft ROBO CC200-20


  • Acrylics (Vallejo Model Air and Model Color)
  • Polyurethane Gloss Varnish
  • Artool Ultra Mask
